FROM A VETERAN. As this is jubilee year it tends to make on look back and think of the flight of time and in this way I am reminded that I am one of the veterans in the sale of your valuable and and successful medicine. 1 have sold it in England and many parts of Scotland. Well o I remember the first circular you sent out some nine or ten years age. You had come to England from America to introduce Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup, and I was struck by a paragraph in which you used these words •— •* Being a stranger in a strange land, I do not wish the people to feel that I want to take the least advantage over thern. I feel thai have a remedy that will cure disease, and I have so much confidence in it that I authorise my agents to refund the money if people should ay that they ha»e not benefitted ts use."y Two old gentlemen, whose names then would not like me to give you, had bees, martyrs to Indigestion for many yea tut They had tiird afl kinds of medicine withoot relief. One of them was so bad he could nse bear a glass of ale. Both were advised to uas the Syrup and both recovered, and were hale and hearty as men in the prime of life. A remarkable case is that of a house pain named Jetferies, who lived at Penshurst, Kent. His business obliged him to expod himself a great deal to wind and weather, ans he was seized with rheumatism, and hi joints soon swelled up with dropsy, and were very stiff and painful. Nothing that the doctors could do seemed to reach the seat of the trouble. It so crippled him that he could do hardly any work, and lor the whole of the winter of 1878 and '79, he had to give up and take to hisbed. He had been afflicted in this sorry way for three years, and was getting worn out and discouraged. Besides, he had spent over £13 for what he called •» doctor's stuft " without the least benefit. In the Spring he heard of what Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup has done for others and bought a as 6d bottle of me. In a few days he sent me word he was much better— before he had finished the bottle. He then sent to me for a4s 6d bottle, and as I was going that way I carried it down to him myself. On getting to his hcuse what was my astonishment and surmise 1° a ll u1 m weedin g a « onion bed. I could nardlybeheve my own eyes, and said :— 1™ rtX°l^ gh r n ° tto , he outhere . m *n, Up be the death of you, after having being lai all winter with rheumatism and droDsv " His reply was : "There is no danger. The weather is fine, and Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup has done for me in a few days what the octors could not do in three years. I think shall get well now." He kept on with the syrup, and in three weeks he was at work again, and has had no return of the trouble for now nearly ten years Any medicine that can do this should be known all over the world.
